Salmon Fishing in Victoria

Salmon Fishing in Victoria Salmon Fishing in Victoria is off to a great start this spring. We are getting very busy and  landing some great fish. Salmon, as you know, are in our area year round but this is a great time to target the Chinook, Spring or King Salmon.

Regular clients Warren and son Dan with an afternoons catch of Chinook salmon on a rather blustery June 1st day. Well done guys, you prevailed and it paid off.

Salmon fishing continues to be strong, most fish in the 8 to 15 pound range and some bigger. Like this one caught yesterday by another father and son team with guide Adam on their first ever trip. I’ll call this one 18, nice job.

It’s time to fish for Halibut!

Halibut Fishing Victoria

Halibut off Victoria, BC

 

Spring in Victoria means It’s time to fish for Halibut! These anglers from the lower mainland did all the heavy lifting reeling in these beauty’s. Fishing the bank in 200 + feet of water makes halibut fishing technical but rewarding. Typically when we halibut fish we anchor in one of our favorite hali spots.  We have 10 or so that usually produce for us and sometimes we’ll go looking for new terrain to find these amazing fish. From previous posted you will remember that halibut fishing is very dependent on the tides and currents so it is best to call ahead so that Adam gave give you choices for the best dates. If the tides are too strong on the dates you can go we won’t take you  halibut fishing but would encourage you to try for salmon instead. The limit this year for halibut is 2 per person so you’ll have lots of opportunity to practice some new recipes with this versatile fish. Ask Adam about his halibut ceviche recipe, yum.

Coho Fishing in Victoria

Coho Fishing in Victoria BC

Coho Fishing in Victoria BC

 

As much as we love the summer fall brings with it Coho Fishing in Victoria. These fun lively salmon travel in schools so when we are on them the catch is usually good. Coho Fishing in Victoria is usually strong from mid September through early October.

It is a great time to get friends and family together to experience some of the best fishing the west coast has to offer. Typically Coho salmon range from 6 – 15 pounds and they are a great fighting fish. We will troll for them in 30 -150 feet of water using a variety of baits and lures. The anglers shown here were in Victoria as part of a conference. They found some time to pull a group together and we arranged for 3 boats to take the group out.  Everyone had a great day and it’s a nice a group activity to do with colleagues. We work with groups as small as 12 or as large as 80.  Large groups take some organization so early booking is key!

For friends and families the booking window is much closer, unlike the summer months when we are booked weeks ahead of time the fall allows for a bit more flexibility. Having said that it is best give us a call early so you have the best choice of dates.

Adam’s Fishing Charters operates year round and we encourage you seriously think about trying your luck Coho fishing in Victoria this year. As you will see from our website our guides are expert fisherman that will do their best to get you into fish. Our rates are $105 per hour and a 5 hour trip would do the trick for Coho. For that price you can have up to four anglers on the boat.

Fishing Guides in Victoria

Fishing Guides in VictoriaThis might be the most technical post yet but fishing guides in Victoria play a delicate line between touch and knowledge. Fishing guides in Victoria are constantly changing their approach in order to consistently catch this amazing fish. We are apt to put down hoochies, lime green flashers, herring and on occasion anchovies! We use downriggers to get the lines straight down 50 to 150 ft and flashers to attract to the salmon to the bait.  More importantly is the gear our fishing guides in Victoria use to land these fish for our guests. We use Islander reels that are second to none in these waters and offer the angler a real challenge but also the opportunity to really feel the fish. We pair those with long limber fishing rods to maximize the sport fishing experience.   This group booked a full day and managed to land 2 nice 20 pounders. Our clients are given the opportunity to book 5 hour trips or full day trips which are 8 hours. If you have the time a full day will give you the most opportunity for success. We can cover more ground, use the full compliment of gear and you get a truly West Coast experience. All our guides have been fishing these waters for more than 10 years, some even longer. When it comes to choosing your fishing guide in Victoria make sure you secure someone who has both experience and knowledge partnered with all the latest equipment.

Salmon Fishing

Salmon Fishing VictoriaWe caught these Springs while salmon fishing off of Victoria a few weeks ago.  We would have posted it earlier but we have been super busy, which is great! Initially this trip was for the husband and the wife was keen to be there but not terribly interested in reeling in a fish.  Justin took that as a challenge and slowly started to talk about how to play a fish while salmon fishing and what to expect when the bite comes on. It wasn’t long before the first of these fish hit and Justin instinctively gave the first fish to the wife!  She was amazing, listened carefully to Justin’s instructions: keep the rod tip up, let the fish run – be patient.  After a great battle, the angler won and the fish was in the net.  The next fish struck and the husband played it like a pro.  It’s not everyday you get a combination of great fishing and calm seas but this picture captured the glory of moment perfectly. We are salmon fishing from Oak Bay to Sooke. We have several great spots just outside the harbor mouth so travel time is almost always under 30 minutes, more typically it would be 15 to 20 minutes to get to the spot the guide thinks you’ll have the most luck on the given day. The waters we fish are protected from large ocean swell because of our proximity to the Olympic Peninsula – which by the way add a dramatic backdrop when you are salmon fishing off Victoria, BC.
